A line of cleaners sold at dollar stores and other discount retailers has been recalled for a labeling error that poses a chemical hazard.

The containers for Mean Green cleaners state that the products do not contain ammonia, when in fact, they might. Ammonia can cause toxic gases if mixed with bleach or other household chemicals.

About 83,800 bottles are affected by the recall.

The recalled cleaning products include Mean Green Super Strength Cleaner & Degreaser and Mean Green Industrial Strength Cleaner & Degreaser, which are sold in spray bottles or plastic containers. The recall involves products with date codes 4225, 4226, 4227, 4228, 4229 and 4230. The date code is printed on the back of the bottle near the QR code.

They were sold at Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, Fred's, Walmart and small retailers nationwide from August 2014 to November 2014 for between $1 and $8.

Consumers who have one of the recalled products should immediately discontinue use and return it to the retailer for a replacement.
